 POEM'S BY A MAUI GIRL

I AM MY OWN PERSON TOO


DO YOU KNOW OR DO YOU CARE.
THAT I AM MY OWN PERSON TOO?
A MIND OF MY VERY OWN, I TOO HAVE THOUGHTS,
IDEAS, WISHES, HOPES AND DREAMS.
WHO ARE YOU TO SAY HOW I SHOULD BE?
JUST LIKE YOU, I HAVE A RIGHT TO SAY
AND EXPRESS JUST HOW I FEEL!
BE IT YOU AGREE OR NOT, I TOO HAVE EVERY
RIGHT TO SPEAK HOW I FEEL!
DO YOU KNOW OR DO YOU CARE?
I AM A PERSON WITH A MINE OF MY EVERY OWN TOO!
I'M NOT DUMB OR STUPID AND I'M FAR FROM BEING AN IGNORANT FOOL!
HOW DARE YOU BLAME ME FOR THINGS THAT YOU THOUGHT YOU HEARD
ME SAY AND FOR THINGS THAT YOU THOUGHT YOU SAW ME DO?
WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?
PERFECT?   I HIGHLY DOUBT THAT TO BE TRUE!
HOW DARE YOU GIVE ME NO CHANCE TO EXPLAIN MY POINT OF VIEW!
DID YOU EVER STOP TO THINK IF I WAS GIVEN A CHANCE,
THEN MAYBE YOU WOULD HAVE UNDERSTOOD WHAT I WAS TRULY GOING THROUGH.
IT'S ALWAYS YOU'RE RIGHT AND YOU'RE NEVER WRONG!
TO YOU I DO THINGS ON PURPOSE JUST SO THAT
I CAN WATCH YOU GET ALL PISSED OFF!
OH, PLEASE! I HAVE BETTER THINGS TO DO
THEN WATCH YOU LOOK AND ACT LIKE A FOOL!
YOU TREAT ME AS IF, I'M AN IGNORANT CHILD!
WELL, HONEY YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THE WOMAN THAT I CAN REALLY BE.
DO YOU KNOW OR DO YOU CARE?
DUMB, I'M NOT BUT PERFECT I HAVE NEVER PRETENDED TO BE.
 THINK WHAT YOU MUST BUT DON'T YOU EVER TRY TO BLAME
ME FOR ALL OF YOUR OWN INSECURITY!
FOR THAT IS YOUR OWN PERSONAL PROBLEM
AND IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ME!
DO YOU KNOW OR DO YOU CARE?
I AM MY OWN PERSON, WITH MY OWN THOUGHTS AND POINT OF VIEWS!
BE IT I'M RIGHT OR IF I'M WRONG, I STILL HAVE EVERY RIGHT
TO BE THE PERSON THAT I CHOSE AND WANT TO BE!
SO PLEASE STOP TELLING ME WHAT KIND OF PERSON YOU WANT ME TO BE.
AND STOP TELLING ME THE PERSON THAT YOU BELIEVE THAT I AM!
DO YOU KNOW OR DO YOU REALLY CARE?
I AM MY OWN PERSON AND I HAVE EVERY RIGHT
TO BE WHO I WANT TO BE!
THAT IS MY RIGHT AND THAT IS HOW IT SHALL ALWAYS BE!
YOU CAN ACCEPT IT OR YOU CAN JUST GIVE IT UP
AND TAKE A LONG WALK!
LIKE I SAID SO MANY TIME WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET!
AND IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT YOU CAN JUST LEAVE,
SO THAT I CAN FINALLY BE WHO I WANT TO BE.
